Cultural Requirements: Grows best in part sun/part shade. Will develop chlorosis in extremely high pH soils. ‘Whitespire' birch is bronze birch borer resistant if grown in appropriate sites. Transplant in spring into moist, well-drained soils.
Ornamental Characteristics: Tall, upright habit, with attractive, grayish-white bark with black markings. Glossy green leaves turn yellow in the fall.
Use in the Landscape: A popular white-barked birch because of the borer resistance but the bark is not as white as paper birch. It looks best when grown multi-stemmed. Avoid seed-grown trees.
